Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Program (URLEND)

The URLEND program, a joint effort of the University of Utah School of Medicine-Department of Pediatrics, Utah State University-Center for Persons with Disabilities (a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service), and the Utah Department of Health's Bureau for Children with Special Health Care Needs was first funded in 2001 and ran successfully for 5 years before being refunded in 2006 for an additional 5 years.

The URLEND Program's Goals include: 1) Strengthen and further expand the functional, programmatic, and evaluative infrastructure of URLEND in partnership with ID, MT, ND, and WY to prepare exemplary leaders in the health care system; 2) Provide interdisciplinary leadership experiences to URLEND trainees within the context of integrated didactic, clinical, and leadership/research activities; and 3) Provide evidenced-based CE/training, consultation, and technical assistance opportunities to health care professionals in UT, ID, MT, ND, and WY that address current and emerging priorities and concerns in the provision of family-centered, culturally competent, community-based integrated systems of care.
